Early morning sunshine and shadows


Early morning sunshine and shadows

Taken from an upstairs window . . . so pleased to see the sun, and love shadows.

Wow beautiful Sheila. What a lovely garden you have, love all the trees. So excited looks like we have sun all day :o)

Just perfect! Hope you are out there now with a cup of coffee!

Lovely :o)
Can you ID some of the trees please ?

Thank you N3 - yes, excellent forecast at last!

Thank you Sticki - I was out there earlier, cutting back plants, but am ready for a chair in the sun now :)

Thanks Terra . . . I can try . . . front LH tree is Amelanchier (the "stick" is a bird feeder); moving along the little diagonal scree bed, at the end is Prunus Serrula. Still moving diagonally, the little tree in the centre is Cercidiphyllum (sp?) Japonicum. Silver-leafed shrub behind the greenhouse is Eleagnus Quicksilver; trees at the back on the left are apple and greengage, then moving right apple, pear and cherry; big tree back centre is a plum, with a Holly behind, and to their right a silver birch (jacqumontii) and another apple. Hope you coped with all that :)

That is so tranquil and pretty. I didn't realise you had so many lovely trees. Glad you are getting sun at last - and so are we!

Looking calm and serene.

Isn't it wonderful to have a proper summer's day at last? I hope that we shall all have more sun and shadows to look forward to.

21 Jul, 2012

 

A great picture - what a wonderful garden you have :)

Yesterday was good until about 3...today wind and cloud :( But you go on and enjoy yourselves......I bet by the end of today lots of you will be complaining it's too hot! lol....me, very envious! ;)

Thanks for your lovely comments Wildrose, Bloomer and Scottish!

Just looked at the local weather forecast (going to a garden lunch party today), and there's a sunny week ahead here . . . temps going up to 27 . . . phew :)

22 Jul, 2012

 

I suspect you're not wrong, Karen!! (Today I have been mostly sitting in the shade . . . )

22 Jul, 2012

 

Very tranquil Sheila...

23 Jul, 2012

 

Doesn't that look just perfect - England at its very best. That's when I miss it most. Here everything is brown and crispy - not many flowers and the trees are dying. Don't knock the rain - I know you've all had the most awful time this summer, but we are praying for the stuff here. No-one much is listening right now. Such a pretty, pretty garden, Sheila - enjoy it while the sun is out.

23 Jul, 2012

 

Thanks Sue!

Thanks Gattina for your lovely comments. We're certainly making the most of sitting out there, and having supper in the garden while we can (28 in the shade today). Hope you get some rain for your garden soon :))

23 Jul, 2012

 

Thank you! Still waiting, umbrellas at the ready! LOL!

23 Jul, 2012

 

Your garden looks delightful Sheila, lovely and green, enjoy sitting and enjoying it.

25 Jul, 2012

 

Thanks very much, Gill, I will :)

25 Jul, 2012

 

These are the days we remember, you can smell the earth, the grass, the flowers really chuck out the perfume, the birds calling..moments of perfect contentment..I can just imagine myself there Sheila!

27 Jul, 2012

 

You'd be very welcome, Tet!!

Hi Sheila, in-describable, You and your Garden, set-up, stirred up such happy memories in my mind...Albeit I'm in so called Sunny South Africa! So the trees and garden plants, etc, may be different.....The Peaceful setting sure "grabbed' a strong desire to be able to sit there (all in the imagination, of course) Over a cup of tea, If that is not being too forward? And discuss our diverse climates, plants, shrubs, trees etc....I'm living in a hotel/come/ boarding,house, set-up...With an existing garden, and my hosts here, an adopted brother + Wife, have given me the care of the set-up! Hope to upload a few pictures sometime....We are situated in Kensington, a couple of centuries old, suburb of Johannesburg....With my next cup of tea, which should be soon! It shall be very calming imagining myself, by your leave, enjoying the cuppa, seated somewhere in your "paradise" Keep well Sheila, The Lord Bless, regards to you and family..Willi

Hi Willi, thanks for your kind words. I have happy memories of sunny South Africa . . . loved Plettenberg Bay and Xnysna!
